Poly Chain is the project of Sasha Zakrevska – a composer, curator, DJ, designer, and radio host from Kyiv, Ukraine. Aiming to bring a breath of fresh air into the scene, she carefully delivers ambient and club-ready textures with a hypnotic electro imprint. Her performances can range from majestic and warm, to meditations ending in fractured conditions.
Zakrevska started her musical journey with piano lessons at the age of four, and later continued with a psychedelic rock/shoegaze band where she began to explore the world of synthesizers. She began performing under the alias Poly Chain after moving to Poland in 2012. A prolific curator – taking part in various Polish parties like Syntetyk, Brutaż, Dype, Trips for Lonely Hearted and Flauta – Zakrevska also began composing tracks for theater and museum performances.
After she returned to Ukraine in 2018 she continued her curatorial activity in the form of a radio show titled »Spaceship Tunes,« playing music she enjoys but doesn’t get to play in the club. She released several albums in 2019: a collaboration with Bartosh Kruczyński, named pulses on Into the light Records, and her solo album +/- on BAS.kolektyw, plus a cassette tape album on the label Mondoj. She has participated in a number of Ukrainian parties including Cxema, Osnova, Veselka, and ∄ – the sister of the Standard Deviation label that was launched with her own split release with Nene H. She has also graced the stage at festivals such as Unsound, Upper, Dym, Next Sound Festival, Sanatorium Dźwięku, and more.
